"Case Logics: Making Cities, Buildings, Equipment, & Gadgets that Give Form to Knowledge"

Presented by Shannon Mattern, Professor of Anthropology, The New School.

Open to everyone.

About this event: In this talk I’ll explore how and what we know — through databanks and disciplinary knowledges, classification systems and privacy protocols — are manifested in the material world, at a variety of scales and through myriad forms of design. We’ll map how our bytes and pages scale up into interfaces, furnishings, architectures, urban plans, and large-scale infrastructures; and we’ll consider how this epistemological cartography can inform design.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, and the Department of History at Western University, and the Toronto Star Lecture Series Fund.
